How I Use It
I let a group of students preview the game over the course of two days and respond back. The group was made up of students of varying levels of ability and interest in middle school science. Overall, students did not seem to be thrilled with the playing platform, saying it was too much reading and not enough simulation.
My Take
Upon my preview, I did enjoy the game, but could see how this would be more effective with a higher level student who was interested in the subject matter. There was some confusion with playing between a virus or a bacteria when "infecting" a host. This was the only game that I have previewed with students from Filament Games that did not receive a favorable rating...seems the title was the most interesting part for most students.
